Bull Valley - All Charges Dropped !!!

Just wanted to once again thank all you guys for patiently waiting for me when I got pulled over in Bull Valley on our ride in August.

original tread:
https://www.chicagolandsportbikes.com...d.php?t=106478

It took a while but I found a really great lawyer and at the 3rd court appearance on Friday which I had to attend as well, all charges got dropped !!!
I'm not a criminal anymore

Lawyer Info:
Ed Donahue
Donahue, Walsh P.C.

Suites C, D
Mc Henry, IL 60050
(815) 344-8860

Excellent! Its my fault for waiting around and giving him the opportunity. We shoulda just kept going instead of waiting with the other group.....my spidey sense was telling me that was gonna happen. Then again, I had all my paperwork, sticker etc. so I wasnt too worried if he did decide to do an equipment check. You shoulda told us you were riding dirty!

My bad, you actually got pulled over. All the other tickets were given out at the conga line we formed up the road.

Well, still good you got out of yours - they were the worst tickets of the bunch!

I didn't know you had Ed represent you. I've known him for a decade or so through a mutual friend. He does good work!

He was super friendly, very encouraging throughout and I thought the $200 were very reasonable for 3 court appearances.
I can highly recommend him and he knows everybody plus their brother :-)
